Neat Cheats to Score High on your Flappy Bird Android Game
Unless you’ve been living under a rock since the past few months, you know what had come unto the gaming world to make us geeks look stupid. A silly 8-bit game that required nothing but for you to ‘tap’ has made games like Ninja Gaiden Black look like a Cakewalk. Sounds easy, but it’s sure as hell is not. Well it’s time to get back at Flappy bird with some simple techniques we picked up recently.
There are a couple of ways to get round this…
Slow things down a notch with power saver
This might be the easiest cheat yet.
All you need to do is turn on your power saver by going to settings and toggling the power saver mode to on. Thanks to the performance hindering abilities of this feature, it will slow down the bird in your game so you can easily fly it through the poles. Kind of like a slow-mo version of the game.
However, this might only work with devices that have power saver modes – we’re talking about Samsung phones is particular. But it doesn’t hurt to try out some apps from the Play Store such as Battery Saver and DU Battery Saver just to give it a try.
Decide your own score with Root access
Alright first things first, you need to have a rooted phone. If you haven’t yet done it already then might as well go ahead if you want to beat this game.
Rooted? Good. Now install a file explorer app. A good one we recommend is ES File Explorer. It’s easy-to-use, it’s small and it’s free.
Now open the game and play it once. After that, close it and swipe it away from the task manager. Open ES file explorer and swipe right to open the left hand side menu, tap on ‘Tools’ and assure that the Root Explorer option is on.
Then tap ‘Local’ and then choose ‘Device’. Now a whole bunch of folders will come up in front of you – this is your root. And here’s where you’re going to make up your own flappy bird score.
Now open the folder named ‘Data’. Now you’ll see another folder named ‘Data’, choose it again. Now look for a folder named ‘com.dotgears.flappy’ and open it up.
Now choose the ‘shared_prefs’ folder and open the file named FlappyBird.xml. To open it, you’ll have a choice of programs out of which you’ll choose ES Note Editor.
Here, you have to make changes to the 4th line of the file. Tap on the button on the top-left corner and change the line from:
<int name=”score” value =”your current score” />
To anything like
<int name=”score” value =”100000000000000000″ />
Click on the back button on the top left now and close the Explorer. Don’t forget to save the edit when prompted.
Open Flappy Bird now and play. When you lose again (God knows you will) you’ll see that you’ve already won it. Coincidence? We don’t think so!
